Official Sonic sneakers coming this summer

They're gonna go fast.

Prepare your feet - and your bank account: Puma has teamed with Sega to launch a pair of official Sonic the Hedgehog sneakers this June.

That's them, right there, although this teaser trailer cunningly masks the finer details of the design behind a coy veil of pixels. What we can see is that the bulk of the shoe is in vibrant Sonic blue, with flashes of yellow (Sandopolis?) and green (Green Hill Zone?), atop soles which appear to match the red of Sonic's own hardy footwear.

It's not just the branding that is retro themed - the sneaker itself is a reboot of Puma's RS line, originally launched in the 80s. Ask your parents.

Puma promises a proper reveal soon, hopefully along with info on the price and stockists.

Dan has been playing games since the 1980s, and doesn't plan on stopping any time soon. Also, get off his lawn. You can contact him by email if you need to know exactly how to leave his lawn.
